GDC is The Partner of Choice Again for Thailand’s Largest Theatre Chain, Major Cineplex

CINEMACON, Las Vegas (April 23, 2015) GDC Technology Limited (“GDC Technology”), a world-leading digital cinema solutions provider, is pleased to announce it performed another deployment for Major Cineplex, the largest circuit in Thailand, in the first quarter of 2015. Solutions provided to the exhibitor included digital cinema servers, projectors, 3D solutions, and Theatre Management Systems (TMS).

 

Major Cineplex, the winner of the 2014 CineAsia Exhibitor of the YearAward, is Thailands leading lifestyle entertainment company, with its core operations in cinema, bowling, karaoke, ice skating rinks, rental and services, advertising media, and movie content. As a pioneer in the Thai cinema business, it introduced the Cineplexconcept to the country in 1995 and has been expanding its network over the last two decades. Currently, Major Cineplex commands over 70% of the market share of the Thai cinema industry’s admissions revenue and is arguably the most profitable circuit in Asia. In 2014, the circuit further expanded by opening its first Cineplex outside Thailand in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

 

Following its rollout of close to 330 units of GDCs integrated projection systems in the last 2 years, Major Cineplex carried out further digital deployments at the beginning of 2015. Seventeen units of integrated projection systems were ordered in the past quarter, resulting in over 63 percent of Major Cineplex screens being equipped with GDCs integrated projection systems. In addition, Major Cineplex is a long-term licensee of GDCs TMS with over 250 screens now managed by GDCs TMS, and it is expected to further increase to over 500 screens by the end of this year.
